Göran Marby has been chosen to succeed Fadi Chehadé as the new chief executive of ICANN. Greg Shatan, president of ICANN’s IP Constituency, tells us what Marby can expect.
Earlier this year, ICANN announced that Göran Marby, then the director-general of the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority had been chosen to succeed Fadi Chehadé.
This came as a surprise to some, who were expecting an ICANN insider or someone with a high public profile. He is set to start at ICANN some time in May.
Marby was given a soft roll-out at ICANN 55 in Marrakech, since he was not yet on the job.
